Rom 2:6 who will render to each person according to his deeds:
Rom 2:7 to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life;
Rom 2:11 For there is no partiality with Yahuweh.
Rom 2:12 For all who have sinned without the Law will also perish without the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law will be judged by the Law;
Rom 2:13 for it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before Yahuweh, but the doers of the Law will be justified.
Did the Heavenly Father give His Law to Israel only to change His mind some 1,500 years later and do away with it? No, we’re told numerous times throughout the Scriptures that the Almighty's Law will endure "forever". The Savior himself could not have made it any clearer when he said that "until heaven and earth passes away not the smallest stroke will pass from the Law" (Matt 5:18-19).
Has heaven and earth passed away yet? Of course not. Then why is it that so many Christians today believe that the Law was done away with when the Messiah died?
The reason for all the confusion today among Christians concerning the heavenly Father's Law is due to the misunderstanding that so many have about things the apostle Paul said in some of his letters concerning the Law, things that the apostle Peter tells us “are hard to understand” (2 Pet 3:16). Things such as “no man can be justified by the Law” (Rom 3:20). Was the apostle Paul implying that the Law did not have to be obeyed any longer? Doesn't he clearly tell us in Romans 2:13 that it will only be “the doers of the Law that will be justified” (Rom 2:13). And doesn't he make it clear in Rom 3:31 that “we establish the Law through faith”?
Are you beginning to see where all the confusion comes in for so many Christians today concerning the Law? The confusion is due to some of the things that Paul said concerning the Law, things that the apostle Peter tells us “are hard to understand” (2 Pet 3:15-16). Peter goes on to say that becuae of the misunderstanding that so many people have concerning some of the things Paul said that those people “will be destroyed” (2 Pet 3:16).
Friend I'm sure that you believe it's everyone else that's confused about some of things Pual said concerning the Law, things such as the example I mentioned about about “being justified by the Law” (Rom 2:13). But let me assure you that in all likelihood you are definitely among those that are misunderstanding things Paul said concerning the Law. If you'll take the time to read 2 Peter 3:16 you'll find that those that are confused about Paul's writing will “be destroyed” because of that misunderstanding.

Many are going to say on that day “Lord, Lord and he's going to say to them “depart frm me I never knew you, you worker of Lawlessness”. (Matt 7:23).
Lawlessness is a violation of the heavenly Father's Law. Don't be among that crowd that “thought” they were saved only to find out when it was to late that the Messiah “never” knew them.

In Part 1 we’ll examine the reason for Peter saying what he did about Paul's writings being hard to understand. In order to better understand Paul's writings, we'll take a closer look at why it was necessary for the Messiah Yahoshua to have to die in order for our sins to be forgiven. If the Almighty tells us that He'll forgive us if we "repent," than why was it necessary for the Savior to suffer and die in order for our sins to be forgiven?
If the Savior died to save us from “sin” (Matthew 1:21) and since sin is a violation of Yahuweh’s Law (1 John 3:4) then why did Paul say the following:
In Part 3, we’ll take an in-depth look at the role that Yahuweh’s Law has in the New Testament. The vast majority of Christians today believe that although the Heavenly Father required His Law to be obeyed in the Old Testament, it no longer has to be obeyed in the New. This misunderstanding is based in part on the misconception that most Christians, including their "ministers," have today as to what the “New Testament” actually is:
How many times have you heard ministers give an arousing sermon on Malachi 3:6 and how Yahuweh said, “I do not change,” and then turn right around and explain how Yahuweh changed his mind concerning His Law! All throughout Israel's history, the heavenly Father sent prophet after prophet telling them to repent, turn back to the Law, and stop sinning. But, according to the same ministers, they say that the apostles preached that Yahuweh supposedly did away with His Law.
A Law that we are told is “perfect” (Psalm 19:7);
A law that Paul tells us is “righteous, holy and good” (Romans 7:12), and that "only those who obey it will be saved" (Rom 2:13).
